When the men charged with working out a collective bargaining agreement that would save at least part of the 2012-13 NHL season get together in Manhattan tonight, a lot of people will be trying to keep up with every development in the talks.
And do it in as close to real time as possible.
It doesn't seem, however, that a lot of Penguins players will be among them.
In the wake of an informal workout at Southpointe today, several said they have no intention of hitting the "Refresh" button on their computers every 15 seconds or so to see if a new scrap of information or insight has come along.
"I'll be on conference calls if there is one, but as far as waiting, I have a life," winger Pascal Dupuis said. "I have a life.
"We're not playing hockey right now, and I have other stuff I have to be taking care off. Obviously, It's not what I want to do right now, but it's what I have to do."
Left winger Matt Cooke was equally emphatic that his plans have nothing to do with 50-50 revenue splits or contract-term limits.
"I'll do kids stuff," Cooke said. "Kids sports. Family stuff. Stuff I've been focused on the last two months."
